“The phoenix” is one of the most iconic symbols in human history. Multiple cultures, from the ancient Egyptians going back to the fifth century BC with Herodotus, where it symbolized consecration and resurrection. To the Greeks where it represents rebirth and renewal. In Chinese culture, it was seen as a noble bird that was able to judge the character of human beings and confer blessings on the righteous. In the fourth century Lactantius, an adviser to Roman Emperor Constantine-I, wrote that it represented the resurrection.
In one Jewish tradition, the phoenix was given eternal life because it resisted the temptation to eat of the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden.
Several early Christian writers drew an analogy between the phoenix and the Christian doctrine of resurrection and life after death. Clement of Rome, a first-century priest and bishop, wrote a letter to the church at Corinth in which he employed the mythological phoenix as an illustration of the resurrection of Jesus.
